Bakytzhan Sagintayev inspected the Polymer Production plant within the framework of the State Program of Forced Industrial-Innovative Development, familiarizing himself with the plant's technology to produce about 11,000 tons of polypropylene a year, up to 34 million pieces. 371 people work in the production. Last year goods worth 2.2 billion tenge were sold.

According to Azamat Zhusupov, Chairman of the Board of "Polymer Production" LLP, today the plant produces polyethylene coatings, biaxially-oriented polypropylene coatings, various packages, as well as polypropylene bags with capacity of 25 and 50 kg. Light and food industry products are exported to all regions of Kazakhstan and to Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. This will have a strong multiplicative effect on the socio-economic development of the region and will promote import substitution.
